Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My yamaha receiver no longer shows any display. It also seems to get fairly warm in it's new cabinet which is a little cramped(bad?), or are the Infinity Quantum jrs too big? I have also had some static and distorted sound when switching sound modes (which I cannot see due to display failure) but only in brief bouts, maybe related to over heating? It is a 16 year old receiver but I'd hate to let it go. Any help? Is it worth bringing to a repair shop? Thanks in advance. -Adrian
Just get a 4 inch ten dollar fan at staples .
Place it on top , rotate the fan facing down into the air vents and all will be cool.

Yes, this receiver is a good one. Alot of gear from a few years ago will still outperform new gear. And why change something if it can be repaired. It most probably has a blown backlamp to the lcd display...some models so easy to change that they just plug in!!. This is quite common and easily fixed. Heat kills electronics. If you wish to keep the old girl going i suggest trying to increase the ventilation. even by getting it into the coolest place in the cabinet. The top of the rack of gear is always best for your amp to get rid of the heat. and try to put some extra height(with say a 2 sticks of wood) under the feet both under the amp and any bits of gear that may sit on top while taking care to to block the ventilation holes. if the amp uses a rotary function selector switch it may have dirty contacts that are causing your crackling problems. A spray internally to the switches contacts with CRC 2-26 will sort that.
